CDBBB: Revisiting “The Five Points and the Six”

In this installment of Changing Denver Bit By Bit, we revisit our episode about Five Points, “The Five Points and the Six.” In that piece, we shared the story of a local business, Rosenberg’s Bagels and Delicatessen, that got caught proudly advertising the fact that it was changing the culture of one of Denver’s most important, traditionally Black neighborhoods.

Well, as you may have seen on social media last week, all that happened again. This time the business was Ink! Coffee and the incident has already made national news.

This CDBBB features Paul’s report from a protest against Ink! and gentrification, as well as a rebroadcast of our Five Points episode from a couple years ago.

Changing Denver is a proud member of the Denver Podcast Network.

Our theme song is “Minnow” by Felix Fast4ward.
